Emily is a South Jersey native and recently graduated from Philadelphia University with a B.S. in Interior Design. Emily’s goal is to pass the NCIDQ exam to become a certified interior designer.
Emily’s favorite part of the design process is taking 2-d plans and turning them into renderings. In her mind, the most rewarding part of the process is rendering a design, receiving feedback, and then editing and adding more so it looks as realistic as possible.
Emily is an advocate for women, women in the design field, as well as women’s mental health. She believes that having an open dialogue, whether on a professional or a personal level, is a great way to eliminate the stigma behind mental health! With the help of new technology and materials, Emily believes that design and design psychology can significantly improve morale and mental health, whether in the classroom, office, hospital, in transit, or at home.
In her free time, Emily loves to walk and train dogs. Her senior capstone project was a police dog training center (see renderings below)! She also enjoys typography, hand-lettering, soccer, hiking, traveling, and true crime.
We are happy to have Emily supporting our design staff and excited to see her grow at The Sheward Partnership.
